That has set up a battle royal with WVU, which is also replenishing its troops up front, and expects to sign at least five offensive linemen in this year's class. The action has been fast and furious so far, with each school claiming victories in head-to-head recruiting tussles.

While Pitt head coach Dave Wannstedt's lament at halftime of his team's 45-13 shellacking at the hands of the Mountaineers last November holds true (Wannstedt said simply "We have to run faster"), he also knew that the West Virginia offensive line was dominating his defensive front. Therefore, along with the search for speed, Wannstedt has concentrated on offensive linemen in this year's class.
